In this recipe, I use a teaspoon of dried sea buckthorn berry powder, which equals to a handful of fresh berries and has all the nutritional content of “real” berries well preserved thanks to low drying temperature. I choose to use berry powder instead of fresh berries because of two reasons; firstly because fresh sea buckthorn berries are nearly impossible to get and secondly because the powder is super easy to use and does not turn your porridge watery as fresh (or frozen and thawed) berries might. Paired with probably the most fiber-full of grains, rye, as well as metabolism boosting flaxseeds, some naturally sweet oat milk, banana and cinnamon, this Arctic Power Berry powder makes a rather perfect add to your nutritious and tasty breakfast porridge.
Rye and sea buckthorn porridge
What you will need:
1dl rye flakes
2dl oat milk
1tbsp ground flaxseed
1tsp sea buckthorn berry powder (I use Arctic Power Berries)
Berries, seeds, nut butter
How to do it?
- Heat up 1dl water and 1dl oat milk in a casserole until almost boiling.
- In the meanwhile, mix your rye flakes, cinnamon, berry powder and flaxseeds and then add them to the casserole. Stir.
- Reduce heat and cook for 2-3 minutes until the porridge starts to become thick. Then add 1/2 mashed banana and 1dl oat milk, stir and cook for another 2 minutes until the banana has melted. Add a pinch of Himalayan salt and stir once more.
- Remove the casserole from the heat, cover it and let it sit on the counter for a couple of minutes. You can for example prepare your coffee/tea while waiting.
- Serve with your choice of berries, nuts, seeds and/or nut butter. I had mine with the remaining banana half, cranberries, sea buckthorn berries, incaberries and almond butter. Enjoy!
